This year, the Forum for China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) marks its 20th anniversary. As it turns 20, FOCAC’s role in shaping Sino-African relations has been remarkable.
The forum is remarkable for many reasons. It shows China’s willingness to engage not just with individual African countries but with the continent as a whole. Secondly, it fits into the continent’s aspirations of unity, self-determination, progress and collective prosperity as outlined in the Agenda 2063.
